Cozy Christmas Block 3 and Happy Mail


Happy Monday sweet friends!

Today is an umbrella type day just because you
do not know if you are going to get rained on
or not.  It looks a lot like Fall but I tell you it
does not feel that way. lol 

I got a little gardening done this weekend along
with a little sewing.


This is my block 3 of the Cozy Christmas sew
along.  It looks a lot like my real tree since I can
not get the garland straight on it either.  lol!
That is why Happiness is Homemade.
I love the way Lori sewed the red on her rick rack.
So I did the same thing.  It is not to late to start sewing
along.  You can join the fun here,


I got some Happy Happy Mail this weekend.  The perfect
tins by Lori Holt. These tins are sew supper cute and fun.  
The red tin comes with the cutest little note cards.  
If you too would like a set, you can buy them here.

Hope you are having a great day.

Hugs,
donna

Cozy Christmas Sew Along


Happy Monday sweet friends.
Hope everyone had a great weekend?

Last Monday the Cozy Christmas Sew Along 
started over at Bee In My Bonnet.  


.

This is block 1.  
I am doing Lori's applique method because I 
like the look of the block.  The only 
thing different is I am machine sewing it
down instead of hand stitching it down.



I did block 2 over the weekend so I could
show you what I did today.  Since I wanted it
to look more like a cottage I added a little bit
of lace under my roof top.
All that is left is to do is hand stitch the smoke
coming out of the chimney.  
If you would like to see what Lori is doing on
her block 2 head over to her blog.

Hope you have a wonderful day.

Hugs

Sew Sweet Bee and Some Quilting


Happy Friday sweet friends!!

We have had a rainy week, and I have
been loving it.  No yard work, but that
will catch up to me later.  I have been spending
some time in my sewing room.  Ahhh!


This month Queen Bee is Missy from 
we make her a cake from one of Lori's pattern's from 
Bee In My Bonnet you can get some of Lori's 
patterns here or here.  This month is Missy's
birthday.  
Happy Birthday Missy!
I loved making this so much and it was sew
easy to do.  I just think the bow adds the sweetest
touch.


On the quilting front.

This customer had a fishing theme going on in
her quilt.  So I thought Tickle would be a great
way to quilt it.  To me it looks like water splashing.


Every year this sweet customer asks me to quilt
a t-shirt quilt that she donates to her church auction
in our little town.  Here is a sneak peak of one of the 
t-shirts and quilting.

Hope you have a beautiful weekend and get to
do what you love.

Hugs,
donna

Crazy Life and Some Quilting



Happy Tuesday sweet friends!

I have been away from my computer and IG way to long.
This is how I feel when I do not get to sew. lol!
Life has been a little crazy around here. But it
is all getting back to normal.


Happiness is quilting.
I have finished a couple of customer quilts which
brings joy to my life.
I used Rhapsody to quilt this quilt.  I love the 
vintagey green she used in her quilt.


This quilt belongs to the same customer.
I quilted this one using Flying Paisley.



There is some Apple Farm by Elea Lutz
in my shop.  These are the cutest prints.
I am looking forward to sewing with them.

I have also been doing some work to my
shop trying to give you a better shopping
experience.  So please excuse the mess

finished soon.

Colorado Beauty and Sew Sweet Bee

.
Happy Wednesday sweet friends.

Summer is here no more rain and it
is so hot.   I have been redoing my flower
beds so I have been melting.  It is taking
some time but as soon as I finish I will post
some pictures for you. 


This Sew Sweet Bee block is for Gracey
over at homespunhandmaiden.  She asked
us to make her a scrappy Colorado Beauty.
Pin wheels are one of my favorite blocks and
I really love this one.  If your want to visit 
Gracey you can find her @homespunhandmaiden
on Instagram.  You will find a lot of cuteness  and
inspiration there.

Hope y'all have a wonderful week and do something
you love.

Hugs,
donna
